Cobra R to come to Australia with 457hp

http://www.mustangweekly.com/2002/ja.../n1-10-3rd.asp
Could this be a typo? Or could this be the one that will race in Nations cup next year?

How good does the shaker look on the mach 1 though....

yeah I thought 320kw at the wheels but that would be like 400kw at the crank. If you compare that to other cars in nations cup, it absolutely smashes thier power/weight ratio. Dodge viper ACR has 343kw and yes a gigantic v10 but it still weighs only 50kg less than standard mustang. Porsche GT3 has "only" 268 kw, and althought it's 1350kg weight is light, and not forgetting it's a track car built for the road, it will get swollowed up by a 400kw V8 on long tracks. Ahh well, well just have to wait and see.

MONNIES VS MUSTANG

Just like the old days huh? when moffat in the transam taking on Harvey I THIKN in the monnie......
good stuff.. ford will win again though

The new mach 1 looks sweet, but i think the shaker doesn't really suit it. Keep the shaker on the old cars... But its about time the Mach 1's come back in town!!!!!! :D

I dont think it was CSV, I thought it was Just HSV, and I didn't think it was 450kw, more like 400kw from the 6.8L stroked LS1 from the Callaway C7 supercar.

I have heard that CSV are building a couple of cars.

Some of the nations cup cars are being built by Garry Rogers Motorsport I believe
